Tripura's media man conferred president's medal for contribution to civil defence work

By Our Correspondent

Agartala December 07,2018 : This is for the first time that a civil defence worker from Tripura has achieved the prestigious president’s  medal for exemplary service in Home Guards and Civil Defence service. Jakir Jossain (38), currently a photo-journalist of local 'Syandan Patrika', had earlier worked for many years in the Home Guards and Civil Defence from the year 2008. In the course of his service Jakir once jumped into a muck-filled drain at old RMS chowmuhuni to save a man who had fallen into it and was on the point of drowning. This sensational event happened when one night Jakir was returning home from his official duty as he saw a small gathering of people despairing over the fate of an unknown man who had been drowning in the muck-filled drain. Without batting an eyelid brave Jakir had handed his costly camera to a bystander and jumped straight into the muck-filled drain and rescued the man . He followed this up by cleaning the man of dirt and took him to the nearby IGM hospital for treatment. Jakir had been helped in his courageous and sacrificing act by his training as a civil defence worker. The incident had hit headlines in the media next day .

It was a long-overdue recognition yesterday when Jakir was conferred the president's medal in a programme held in the 'Vigyan Bhawan' by the home minister Rajnath Singh himself for distinguished peace-time service. He had followed his rescue work by other services he had rendered to many people.
